The WaterCooler bot pairs up your online team members and encourages them to take 5 minutes to talk about something not related to work. Chances are high that you are working from home. Either because of Covid-19, or because you work for a modern company. Most likely you, or your colleagues, feel a bit lonely as a result. There are steps you should take to make your team happier and more productive. The WaterCooler bot is the first of these steps. It is a simple, low ceremony, way of replicating the chance encounters that naturally occur in a physical office.
